How to show media info on hover box previews?

Post by 1024mb »

If I remember correctly (although my memory has played silly games with me before) XYplorer used to show resolution and even file size on the hover box preview, now it only shows the filename with the extension.
How can I make XY to show the resolution in the hover box for videos and images?

Thanks.

Try pressing the "S" key while hovering to change the amount of info displayed and the "B' key to change the background color.

Finally I can see some info, thanks! Can you please point me where do I find that information? I have searched in the help menu but didn't find anything.
Also, there is no way of customizing what info is shown in the hover box?

Look in the Configuration Dialog section of Help under File Info Tips and Show Hover Box. You can also change the Hover Box size by pressing numpad Add and Subtract and you can show the normal File Info Tips instead of the Hover Box by holding down the control key. You can configure what is shown in File Info Tips via Configuration, but not the Hover Box.

Yeah, it doesn't. That's why I was asking this. I don't know if its currently possible to do it.

Thank you, I don't know how I missed that.
So it isn't possible as of now to add more info into the Hover Box? I hope this can be implemented.

I'd like to be able to see the resolution of video files and video/audio codecs (on video files, ofc, audio codecs info for audio files is redundant as it is explicit in the extension). Although with the resolution is enough, at least for me.

There are some plans for this, but not very urgent ones.

While you're implementing this low priority thing, any chance we could add scripted information too?
